Published on

Today is US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s last day on the job. She will be replaced by John Kerry, Senator from Massachusetts. As Advocates for Youth‘s Janine Kossen rights in Politico this week, “No one can doubt the indelible impact she has made on advancing the rights of women and girls, young people and LGBT individuals around the world. The question now becomes — what will Secretary Kerry do to build on these accomplishments?”

Secretary Clinton, a strong proponent of women’s health and rights and youth involvement in international development, will forever be regarded as one of the most forward-thinking and strong Secretaries of State the US has ever had.

Clinton will be giving her farewell comments to staff today at 2:30pm ET. You can watch LIVE on CSPAN.
